I would say that the decision between the two is quite labored but easy. As much as a loyal fan I have been because of Ubuntu’s “simplicity” I would have to say I’m siding with Fedora 15. The main rift between the two is caused by their interface management. The simplicity has gone too far in Ubuntu and lacks stability. Personally, as a seasoned Linux guy, I would go with Fedora 15, if not for the more power user friendly(if you can call it that) features, then for the GNOME 3 interface which, although is still nasty, is more stable and feels more powerful than Unity.

GNOME 3 and Unity, two players on the field… Two players who are almost matched. I won’t say GNOME 3 is as bad as Unity. Now, I’m all for simplicity but none for dumbing down. Seriously, the search for administrative utilities in Ubuntu 11.04 felt like a treasure hunt. Fedora 15 went just as well. I suppose major distros are attempting to aim more for the Linux newcomer. However, I can’t tell whether it is how used to GNOME 2 that I am or whether the “simpler” interfaces are harder to use. Where did my easy to access applications and system menus go? A good tip for all the distro producers out there from us power users and casual but seasoned linux fans, either scrap Unity and GNOME 3 or at least give us an easy option to go without.

I am terribly sorry about how long its been since I’ve written a review. I had written up a draft for my Fedora 11 review when….. somehow my notes went missing. I’ve been scatterbrained lately so I didn’t want to write the review completely out of memory because I fear that it may look bad. Rest assured though that I will try my best to rewrite the notes and post my review for Fedora 11. However, do be warned that it may be a long time. Thanks for understanding.
